Tales told at the festival cover a rich range of experience and geography. The performers will share stories from Russia and West Africa, and some from closer to home as well, including legends from the South and traditional Native American tales.
Hearing Voices will also include some opportunities to share your own stories with others. Tim Tingle will host a storytelling workshop and a community-wide story swap.
We want to thank the sponsors whose support helps us bring this great festival to Washington County residents. Hearing Voices is supported in part by grants from the Regional Arts and Culture Council and each of the local Friends of the Library organizations representing WCCLS member libraries, with additional in-kind services provided by Pamplin MediaGroup, Courtyard by Marriott, ProGraphics Services, Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club, Glenn & Viola Walters Cultural Arts Center, Recology, Stash Tea and the Portland Storytellers’ Guild. Thanks to all!
